Transportation Jobs - Slight Gain

The jobs report that came out Friday indicated a total of  217,000 jobs gained although no change to the unemployment rate which is still at 6.3%, there were gains  in the transportation-warehousing sector which rose by 16,000 in May.  The industry over the prior 12 months has added average of 9,000 jobs per month, and in May transportation had 6,000+ and 4,000+ for messengers and couriers. Other sectors showing job gains throughout the year included manufacturing which added 105,000 jobs and both sectors (transportation and manufacturing) should maintain gradual growth for the next 12 months. We welcome the comments of individual truckers/carriers and their opinion on how they expect the industry to perform through next year.
